To assist residents as they transition to practicing physicians, the AMA negotiates student loan refinancing options through Credible. More than 80% of physicians under the age of 40 are still paying off their medical student loans, according to the AMA Insurance’s National Work/Life Profiles 2014 survey. Nearly half of these young physicians carry a debt of $150,000–$200,000.
